  Bills | Reggie Ragland to compete in the middle    Fri Apr 29, 08:28 PM

Buffalo Bills LB Reggie Ragland will compete with LBs Preston Brown and Zach Brown for the starting middle linebacker spot in the Bills' 3-4 defense. General manager Doug Whaley views Ragland as a leader, though, and will bring something to the defense the Bills need, according to Whaley.

Footballguys view: They didn't take him for his singing voice, so we assume that the Bills have plans for him. Further, the linebackers were bad last year so every position could be up for grabs.

  Panthers | Luke Kuechly on schedule    Thu Mar 31, 07:58 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (shoulder) said he is on schedule in his rehabilitation process. Kuechly is six weeks removed from surgery to repair a shoulder injury. He is no longer in a sling and is gradually gaining strength and range of motion back in his shoulder. Kuechly also said he's been riding a bicycle a lot and doing lower body work, adding that it's going to be a gradual process to get back to full health by training camp.

Footballguys view: Kuechly is the heart of this defense, so it's vital and critical the Panthers get him healthy. It looks like he will be back in time for the heavy lifting in camp, though expect the team to be cautious with him. There's no need to push a veteran too hard and risk a setback.

  Giants | Jasper Brinkley officially re-signs    Tue Mar 29, 05:52 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants LB Jasper Brinkley officially re-signed to his one-year deal Tuesday, March 29. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brinkley didn't get much interest on the open market, so he'll return to the Giants to play a similar role to the one he played last year. He's a two-down, run-stuffer who arrives at the ball with natural violence.

  Bengals | Karlos Dansby joining Bengals    Tue Mar 29, 11:17 AM

Free-agent LB Karlos Dansby (Browns) will sign with the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, March 29.

Footballguys view: The Bengals need to do something with Vontaze Burfict suspended the first three games of the year. Dansby wanted to find a home with a contender, and he's done that as the Bengals should push for a playoff spot and the AFC North title in 2016.

Cleveland Browns LB Karlos Dansby has been informed that he will be released, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The move saves the Browns $3.5 million in cap space. Dansby may not quite be the player he used to be, but he's got the ability to be a good starter for a contender. He should feel good about leaving the (constantly?) rebuilding Browns.
